International Student Travel Grant Can Be Used for PQ'15

Student members can apply for the Student International Travel Grant and, if the award winner chooses, apply it to travel to the Prague Quadrennial 2015.

December 1 is the deadline for the $1,000 grant which enables a student member to travel outside the United States for education or research in a theatre-related discipline.

Applications are available here. Applicants must be a current student member and a full-time student in a graduate program or upper-division undergraduate courses in theatre. They also must demonstrate excellence in research or design in a field related to USITT's mission. Refer questions to Sandy Bonds at

PQ '15 will be held in June. With a theme of SharedSpace Music, Weather, Politics, the organizers have planned workshops and student performances in the DISK Space and on the street. For more information about the events and opportunities, link to SharedSpace.

USITT offers international travel grants to students in odd-number years and to professionals in even-number years. The 2013 travel grant winner, Lauren Gaston of the University of Missouri-Kansas City, received $1,000 to help pay for her travel to study and work in costume design at the Hong Kong Academy for the Performing Arts.

Other recipients have traveled to Prague, Czech Republic, to study engineering and lighting design, and to Budapest, Hungary, to research its State Opera House.
